National Bar Poker Open Winner Basil Congro Wins the Eastern Poker Tour January $10K Monthly Championship
Charity player and current National Bar Poker Open winner Basil Congro won today’s Eastern Poker Tour Season 29 January $10,000 Monthly Championship.
A total of 201 players came out to the VFW in Walpole.
Basil only knocked out one player and that was Bob Young on the very last hand of the tournament when the blinds were 80K/160K with flopping Quad Jacks. Bob was very gracious coming in second place and is looking forward on playing the Season finals coming up at Foxwoods.
Hailing from Sandwich, Mass. Basil plays twice a week. When asked about the Final Table, Congro was confident with who was on his right. “I’ve played with these guys and I knew where I was all the time”.
This Final Table took almost two hours and at times, play was slow. Bob Young (RI) was up and down early on this Final Table and then all of sudden he was winning coin-flips and knocked out 4 consecutive players.
